Hill walking, mountaineering and rock climbing courses in Snowdonia.


Snowdonia is a magical mountain environment with some of the best walking, scrambling and climbing to be found anywhere in the British Isles. The 838 square miles of national park contain an amazing set of mountains that stretch all the way from the peaceful Carneddau in the north to the mythical Cadair Idris in the south. Leaving the Carneddau’s wild ponies, you descend into the wide valley of Ogwen and see the incredible north ridge of Tryfan. With two amazing standing stones called Adam and Eve on its summit, Tryfan hosts some classic mountaineering adventures on its big east face and is part of the Glyderau mountain range – peaks full of spiky rock formations pointing in all directions.

Descending further south, you find yourself in the Llanberis Pass, home to some of Britain’s finest rock climbs and underlying the northern side of the famous Snowdon massif, with it’s horseshoe of peaks that include the spectacular knife-edge ridge of Crib Goch and the biggest mountain face in Wales – Y Lliwedd. Snowdon, also known as Yr Wyddfa to the Welsh, stretches another of its long arms around the historic climbing mecca of Clogwyn Du’r Arddu. Continuing your journey south, you reach the quiet Moelwynion hills, the little-trodden Arenig, the maze-like rock formations of the remote Rhinogydd, the big Aran hills and the crater-like shape of Cadair Idris, formed by a circular glacier during the last ice age…
